Born to an Italian mother and a Swedish father,
Gabriella grew up in both Italy and Germany, and eventually,
with a true penchant for adventure— decided to explore other countries
while studying modern English Literature in Germany, Ireland and Australia.
Sheer curiosity, a tin ear and a deeply rooted love for music
landed Gabriella into the very core of the often maligned
entertainment industry, where she first worked for the Irish Tourist Board,
and then for a few years at English Geographics Magazine which
is located in London. Gabriella then returned to Germany and worked
for an advertising agency which produced CD covers and computer enhanced images for
various recording stars from music, television and film entertainment.
With an inherently slick journalistic savvy and a wealth of
musical knowledge, she eventually began interviewing various musicians
for smaller publications throughout Western Europe. Gabriella
also hosts an alternative music radio show in Germany on occasion and
spends most of her free time on trains, planes or attending
sold-out concerts. Whomever thinks she's just living large and
schmoozing with really cool celebrities should probably take a
few much-needed life lessons on trying to cope with some of
those massively overwhelming egos usually found roaming about
freely throughout the music industry— Surviving on really bad
airline food and learning not to laugh hysterically when she's
been forced to listen to musicians drone on and on— and for the
10,000th time, confessing, "It is my most personal album thus far."
has been quite an arduous task for Gabriella. But she's been
there and back and has truly enjoyed and relished some of the
more rare moments— in which an recording artist actually
affords her the opportunity to understand the deeper
"meaning", behind the music— and beyond all of the
unnecessary hype. Some of the National and International
publications and web sites that Gabriella has been featured both
"in" and "on" include, Piranha, Circus Magazine, Code Magazine, E! Online, NY Rock, Xtreme, Slam, British MTV Magazine, Spin, and Der Spiegel— to name but a few.
